More bear paws

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

This afternoon I pulled out the storage box containing my bear paw blocks….this little lot slipped onto the back burner a while ago, but I think I’d like to try and get them finished up in time for Christmas. I hadn’t quite remembered that I only need another 6 and then I can start sashing them all together.

Somehow six seems a very manageable number.

I love this fabric and the pattern and if I say so myself, I’m surprised that it seems to have been put to one side.

I have vague memories of dreaming about making tiny half square triangles.

Maybe that was it!

    I love that block, and I love that fabric. I think I am going to love that quilt!

    6 is very reasonable, even one a day and they are done in a week. The fabrics are beautiful and the pattern really looks lovely in them.

    I think it’s nice to put a project aside and work on another every once and a while. Then you get new excitement for the former project when you pick it up. 6 is an easy number. You should have this quilt finished soon.

    It’s funny how sometimes we put something away when we are so near the finish. I’m sure you have done them by now – good luck!

    Bear’s Paw was my favourite block when I made my very first sampler. Funnily I have never made another one. No idea why as I am not afraid of the small triangles??
    This is going to be one very lovely quilt, I still think you should keep it for yourself.
